About the Brand

Despite their name (and their popularity in Panama), Panama hats actually originated in Ecuador, where skilled artisans continue to weave them by hand out of palm leaves, which become really sturdy when they dry. Artesano empowers these traditional artisans by giving them access to a global market. For every purchase, Artesano donates five dollars to TECHO, a youth-led organization in Ecuador that builds homes for those living in poverty.
